  1. Molecular Characterization of Pneumococcal Isolates from Pets and Laboratory Animals

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Mark van der Linden, Adnan Al-Lahham, Werner Nicklas, Ralf René Reinert

    Background Between 1986 and 2008 Streptococcus pneumoniae was isolated from 41 pets/zoo animals (guinea pigs (n = 17), cats (n = 12), horses (n = 4), dogs (n = 3), dolphins (n = 2), rat (n = 2), gorilla (n = 1)) treated in medical veterinary laboratories and zoos, and 44 laboratory animals...

  2. Play the "Pets" Card

  3. Group composition for fattening entire male pigs under enriched housing conditions - influences on behaviour, injuries and boar taint compounds

    | Contributor(s):: Holinger, M., Fruh, B., Hillmann, E.

    In organic farming, the production of pork from entire male pigs seems to be the most promising alternative to castration, as organic animal husbandry aims at high standards of animal welfare and elimination of mutilations. However, previous research on behaviour of entire male pigs was mostly...

  4. Reconstruction and morphometric analysis of the nasal airway of the dog (Canis familiaris) and implications regarding olfactory airflow

    | Contributor(s):: Craven, B. A., Neuberger, T., Paterson, E. G., Webb, A. G., Josephson, E. M., Morrison, E. E., Settles, G. S.

  5. Assessing ridden horse behavior: professional judgment and physiological measures

    | Contributor(s):: Hall, C., Kay, R., Yarnell, K.

    The assessment of ridden horse behavior by 12 equestrian professionals (riding instructors n=4, riders n=4, veterinarians n=4) was compared with observed behavior and physiological measures (salivary cortisol and eye temperature). Horses (n=10) were ridden at walk, trot, and canter in a...

  6. Assessment of ridden horse behavior

    | Contributor(s):: Hall, C., Huws, N., White, C., Taylor, E., Owen, H., McGreevy, P.

    Assessments of the behavior of ridden horses form the basis of performance evaluation. The purpose of any performance being evaluated will determine the factors considered important, factors indicative of "poor" performance, and what makes a successful equine athlete. Currently, there is no...

  7. Perception of dogs' stress by their owners

    | Contributor(s):: Mariti, C., Gazzano, A., Moore, J. L., Baragli, P., Chelli, L., Sighieri, C.

    Questionnaires potentially have a broad applicability in measuring stress levels in dogs, as owners know their dogs' behavior and personality better than anyone else. The aim of this research was to evaluate how owners perceive stress in their dogs through understanding of displayed behaviors....

  8. Immunohistochemistry of the Canine Vomeronasal Organ

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: JC Dennis, JG Allgier, LS Desouza, WC Edward, EE Morrison

    The canine's olfactory acuity is legendary, but neither its main olfactory system nor its vomeronasal system has been described in much detail. We used immunohistochemistry on paraffin-embedded sections of male and female adult dog vomeronasal organ (VNO) to characterize the expression of...

  9. Canine olfactory genetics

    | Contributor(s):: Quignon, P., Robin, S., Galibert, F.

  10. Genetics of canine olfaction and receptor diversity

    | Contributor(s):: Quignon, P., Rimbault, M., Robin, S., Galibert, F.

  11. Research progress on morphology and anatomy of the canine olfactory system

    | Contributor(s):: Sun, Ning

  12. Search and rescue: nutritional considerations for dogs with missions from drugs to disaster

    | Contributor(s):: Newman, M.

  13. Sense of smell in dogs: physiological aspects and factors of variation

    | Contributor(s):: Vadurel, A., Gogny, M.

  14. Genetic relatedness of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius (MRSP) isolated from a dog and the dog owner

    | Contributor(s):: Soedarmanto, I., Kanbar, T., Ulbegi-Mohyla, H., Hijazin, M., Alber, J., Lammler, C., Akineden, O., Weiss, R., Moritz, A., Zschock, M.

  15. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in resident animals of a long-term care facility

    | Contributor(s):: Coughlan, K., Olsen, K. E., Boxrud, D., Bender, J. B.

    Animals provide benefits to elderly and chronically ill people by decreasing loneliness, increasing social interactions, and improving mental health. As a result, many hospitals and long-term care facilities allow family pets to visit ill or convalescing patients or support animal-assisted...

  16. Heterogeneity and phylogenetic relationships of community-associated methicillin-sensitive/resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates in healthy dogs, cats and their owners

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Wan, M. T., Fu, S. Y., Lo, Y. P., Huang, T. M., Cheng, M. M., Chou, C. C.

    Aims: To investigate the distribution of staphylococcal enterotoxin genes (se) and the molecular features of community-associated methicillin-sensitive/resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MSSA/MRSA) isolates in the nostrils of healthy pets and their owners.Methods and...

  17. Motor and sensory laterality in thoroughbred horses

    | Contributor(s):: McGreevy, P. D., Rogers, L. J.

    We investigated lateralisation in horses because it is likely to be important in training and athletic performance. Thoroughbred horses (n=106) were observed every 60 s for 2 h, when they were at pasture, and the position of the forelimbs in relation to one another was recorded. There was a...

  18. The effect of nose rings on the exploratory behaviour of outdoor gilts exposed to different tests

    | Contributor(s):: Studnitz, M., Jensen, K. H., Jorgensen, E.

    Rooting behaviour appears to be an important part of the behavioural repertoire in pigs. It is suggested that it is in fact a behavioural need. The present study investigated whether nose-ringed gilts, which are unable to root, can satisfactorily substitute rooting with other exploratory...

  19. Alternatives to nose-ringing in outdoor sows. 1. The provision of a sacrificial rooting area

    | Contributor(s):: Bornett, H. L. I., Edge, H. L., Edwards, S. A.

    The nose-ringing of outdoor pigs (Sus scrofa) is commonly practised in many countries as a means to inhibit rooting and reduce pasture damage and soil erosion. This practice has been questioned on ethical grounds and alternatives are being sought. Sixteen multiparous pregnant sows were housed in...

  20. Conditioned aversion in sheep induced by Baccharis coridifolia

    | Contributor(s):: Almeida, M. B. de, Schild, A. L., Brasil, N. D. A., Quevedo, P. de S., Fiss, L., Pfister, J. A., Riet-Correa, F.

    In Southern Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay, the invasive weed Baccharis coridifolia often poisons naive animals. Farmers prevent B. coridifolia poisoning using several unconventional methods to reduce ingestion: (1) burning plant material under an animals' nose, and having the...
